After petting some goats, walking around the farm, and enjoying donuts and cider, we were off to Falls Terrace Restaurant and Tumwater Falls. The salmon are returning now, the air is crisp, and the sun is still out, so this is the perfect time to visit.
What better way to start than by having some amazing, local salmon at Falls Terrace Restaurant? Look at them lining up below! I don't think I endangered the population. After lunch, we set off on our hike. The trail around Tumwater Falls is only about a half a mile, but the park itself encompasses 15 acres, owned and is operated by Olympia Tumwater Foundation (OTF). There are restrooms and picnic areas. I could go on about the park's beauty and amenities, but I think I'll let the photos speak for themselves.
For more information about the park, visit the website, or drive out and take a look. The park is open from 8:00 AM to 30 minutes prior to sunset.
